My friend Hoyt at www.donutbuzz.com has a nice addition to his site about movies that make him cry. Made me start thinking of my own lists. For example:
The 3 Blockbuster Films I've Never Seen:
1. King Kong. Didn't see the original, the remake in the 70s nor the most recent digital effects gorilla-palooza. The idea of a giant great ape just never got me stirrin'. I'm not sure I could suspend my belief long enough to enjoy it;
2. Star Wars (none of the ones from the 70's or whenever the first three were premiered). I did see the Star Wars with Jar Jar Binks, but only because a friend brought it over to my house to watch it. Movies about people far, far away in distant galaxies are like great giant apes to me;
3. The Lord of the Rings. Never read the book, didn't take acid in the 70s and, as such, never got into the LOR thrillogy. Honestly, arrow shooting trolls and magic-wielding elves are like...well, you get it.
What blockbuster have you missed?
